SA Inducts Twelve New Members into the Cum Laude Society
On May 21, 2018, Sewickley Academy’s Senior School gathered in Rea Auditorium to honor the academic, athletic, and artistic achievements of students during the annual Awards Ceremony which included an induction presentation for the newest members of the Cum Laude Society.
Despite playing only 2 and a half quarters, each of our starters scored between 14 and 17 points as the first 8 players had only 2 turnovers among the group. My compliments to our guys for playing with energy and continuing to share the ball so well. We are the only team in the area with five players averaging double figures which is an amazing statistic and great testimony to the skills, the basketball IQ and the outstanding team players we have once again this year! Our three guys who help us off the bench have figured out how to best help this team in so many ways that don't show up in the newspapers' stats!
